Backpacks come in all shapes and sizes with basically two different types for the backcountry packer.

1) Internal frame backpack
2) External frame backpack

So which is best and why? Well the short answer is it depends. It will depend on your physical conditioning Ryan Anderson Redskins Jersey , how heavy a load you plan on carrying, type of terrain expected, your activity while carrying the pack, how much stuff you plan on packing Jonathan Allen Redskins Jersey , is the weather hot or cold, and finally which fits your personal style best.

External frame backpacks are called this simply because they have the framework on the outside. These "old-school-style" packs generally can carry more weight while positioning the weight higher on your back. This allows for good vertical load transfers to the hips providing you with a more natural upright walking posture. They are very suitable to hiking on well established trails free from low over-hanging branches or difficult terrain. The frame also keeps the pack suspended away from your back allowing lots of air flow between you and your pack making it cooler to use in hot weather. The external frame also provides for easy attachment of extra gear. Proper loading is accomplished more easily with the many small compartments and the framework allows the wearer to carry awkward unbalanced loads easily.

The downsides to externals are that they do carry the weight high and away from your back so they don't have the best weight stability on your back. You run the risk of feeling tipsy and off-balanced during scrambling maneuvers or when climbing or descending dicey terrain. These packs also often tend to be wider and bulky sticking out from your body, so they tend to get hung up on branches and brush in close quarters.

Internal frame backpack's name come from having the framework on the inside the pack. This makes for a much more compact and form-fitting pack, better for the backpacker who'll be hiking rugged trails that require freedom of movement and balance Vernon Davis Redskins Jersey , or activities that require independent arm movement; such as skiing, or climbing. The flexible suspension can be also be formed to follow the contours of the spine for a more comfortable fit. The load also rides close to the back bringing the pack's center of gravity closer to the wearer's center of gravity, creating a balanced and stable load during higher speed activities.

The downsides to internals are that they usually have one big center compartment rather than many small compartments making it more difficult to load and find gear. There are not as many options available to hang extra gear on the outside of the pack because the frame is not exposed. With an internal frame you can have a tendency to walk leaning forward to counterbalance the load on your back. Also they are much hotter on your back because they don't allow air flow between your pack and back.

So which is best? That can only be determined by you and what you want from your pack.

GABORONE, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Botswana's national soccer team the Zebras is set to play neighbors South Africa in the regional Confederation of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) tournament slated for May 2015 in South Africa.

The draw for the tournament was done on Thursday night and pitted Botswana against Bafana Bafana in the quarterfinals.

At least 12 of the 14 COSAFA countries have confirmed participation in this year's tournament.

Angola and Comoros have pulled out of the competition and their places will be taken by 2015 AFCON finalists Ghana and Tanzania as guest teams.

The eight lowest ranked teams Jordan Reed Redskins Jersey , according to the FIFA rankings, will compete in the first round and were drawn into two pools each containing four teams. The top two teams in each group will advance to the knockout stage, where they will join the six higher ranked sides at the quarterfinals.

Botswana, currently ranked 6th in the region Kirk Cousins Redskins Jersey , will therefore proceed straight to the quarterfinals where they will play South Africa. The tournament will give Peter Butler's side a perfect opportunity for competitive matches after a long period of inactivity following the team's failure to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) that ended in Equatorial Guinea earlier this month.

Against Bafana Bafana, Botswana faces a rejuvenated team that, despite failure to progress to the knockout stages of AFCON, did a stellar job in the qualifiers where they qualified at the expense of African powerhouse and then defending champions Nigeria.

Zebras made some progress after Butler assembled a relatively new team after replacing Stanley Tshosane as coach at the beginning of 2014. The team managed to get through to the group stages of the AFCON qualifiers.

The Futures Bright vs The Futures Electric

With the growing problem of global warming and the damage carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are causing to the ozone layer Josh Norman Redskins Jersey , a long term plan is being implemented to move the UK towards a low carbon heat future, a future with panel heaters and electric radiators at the forefront of home heating.

Eliminating Greenhouse Gas Emissions : Once upon a time, the primary source for heat production was wood. This was eventually surpassed by coal during the industrial revolution, which was soon followed by oil and gas. Today Trent Williams Redskins Jersey , gas is by far the dominant fuel, producing around 80% of all heat used in the UK – in homes, commercial buildings and industrial processes. Unfortunately, the production of gas is incredibly damaging to the environment Ryan Kerrigan Redskins Jersey , which in turn makes it dangerous to society, health, and the economy.

A global temperature rise of just a 2'C will cause untold damage to the planet, which is why greenhouse gases must be eliminated. As detailed in the 2008 Climate Change Act Sean Taylor Redskins Jersey , the UK aims to reduce carbon emissions by a.
